A broken link is a link on a web page that no longer works. Broken links can be problematic for users of a web site as they are unable to access the desired resource and may decide to make use of another site to find the necessary information or service.

According to wiki:Broken or dead link, a link that, having suffered link rot, points to a webpage or server that is no longer available on the World Wide Web

Broken link is a link which is not accessible or the webpage pointed by that link is not available.

A broken link or in other words dead link is also known as a dead link, is a link that no longer points to an active destination or landing page! You should know that search engines do not like broken links, that it is why it is necessary to keep your site's links active.
